Hey guys a couple questions.
1. So I started torquing down the oil pump and about halfway through I heard a loud popping noise and realize the cover is now cracked. I'm wondering if this happened because I torqued the bolts too much, or if the unit itself is weak. I want to prevent this from happening again when I purchase a new one. The ATSG manual says to start in the center and and torque the bolts to 10 ft-lbs in a spiral
pattern. I assumed that meant circular, like clockwise. Does spiral actually mean criss-cross?
2. So after I re assembled all the rotating parts, I checked my pan and realized I still had a bearing and a washer remaining! Doh. This might be a longshot, but does anybody happen to know where they go?
